From February to May 2015, the CIPD and BIFM, the British Institute for Facilities Management, invited business leaders to discuss the changing nature of workplace environments. How and where do we work well, and what do HR, Facilities Management and other professions need to do to make sure our workplaces improve the quality of our work and working lives?

The Workplace Conversation was a staged online conversation, designed to harness ideas and connections between professionals. Nearly 300 people took part, generating over 100 ideas on current challenges and solutions.

This report presents the main themes that emerged from The Workplace Conversation and the solution that was voted as winner.
